On Saturday, November 8th, Plantations’ Natural Areas Program held a Cascadilla Gorge clean-up. Given the gorge's steep walls, this was no easy feat! Invaluable help was provided by ten Cornell Outdoor Education staff, who rappelled down and removed accumulated trash from a portion of the gorge slope, and 18 Chi Phi Fraternity volunteers, who hauled out three dumpsters worth of trash. The Fraternity and Sorority Association hopes to continue this partnership to keep our gorges gorgeous! Only through continued stewardship and a shared environmental ethic will we truly protect these remarkable areas.
